“Fabulous stay, beautiful place and wonderful break”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed with our two young children and extended family, including two teenagers. It was love at first sight! We were the first guests to trial both apartments at the cottages as we had a total of 8 people in our party plus a dog. My sister and her two teenage girls shared the 1 bed apartment and we had the larger one. Both were beautiful inside and decorated to a very high standard. The converted barn was one of the highlights of our stay and a great place to hang out and play a few games of snooker or xbox. Views of the river were stunning, with the sun setting just behind giving you a superb view all round and it was made even better if you were taking it in whilst in the hot tub! The hot tub was amazing and very much our favourite part of the stay along with the horse riding. Helen and Ross were lovely hosts and made us feel so relaxed and welcome, a lovely family. They went out of their way to ensure our stay was a memorable one and if we had even the slightest question or needed anything they were so accommodating. Lots of places to visit and things for the children to see and do, even the teenagers loved it! We will definitely be going back. What more could you ask for from a holiday other than beautiful scenery, cosy cottages and lovely people.

“Perfect rural retreat, with all mod cons!”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A wonderful, relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.
The owners couldn't do enough for us. The hot tub is wonderful.
The cottage is very well designed and equipped, as well as being warm and cosy.
The enormous games room is a real plus!
We can't wait to return with our bikes - there are some super cycle routes nearby.
Birdwatchers can watch the ospreys' nests at the Lodge Visitor Centre in Aberfoyle where
there are superb views of the surrounding countryside.

“Fantastic holiday break away for all the family”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Just back from our stay at Riverside Cottage in Gargunnock and can't rate it highly enough. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The location was breathtaking and it catered for all our needs ( 4 adults, 2 teenagers, a five year old, a year old baby, out dog and last but not least our pet rabbit) There was something to keep everyone happy, from the amazing hot tub to the games room. My daughters will miss feeding and patting the horses. They even got to ride them during our stay thanks to Helen, the owner. We created many nice family memories during our stay and would highly recommend this idyllic break away to anyone. Too class

“Adorable Easter Time within a beautiful scenery and relaxing amenities”

We had a great, relaxing and joyful time spent at the Coach House. Surrounded by nature, we had a chance to spot some rabbits, deer and roe as well as many birds. After exploring the area, we could relax and take a rest in the jacuzzi watching the stars on the sky.
The owners horses were very friendly and our daughter enjoyed them most. She overcome her fear of touching one.
The place is also great base for escapes,- about 10 minutes to see the Sterling castle, some waterfalls and other castles in the area as well as some nice paths for walking.
Next time we definitely need to stay for longer to make the most of our visit.

“Lovely Cottage in great location, with fantastic Hot tub”
Reviewed 19 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We booked the cottage for a week as our daughter had a placement at the nearby Blair Drummond Safari park. The location was perfect, only 10 mins drive from the park, and 15 mins at most from the centre of Stirling.
Our party consisted of my wife , our daughter, and myself, our adult son joined us for the first few days.
On arrival we were greeted by Ross and Helen, and shown round the property, everything was spotless and looked new and to a high standard, we have paid a lot more for less well equipped properties over the years.
The cottage has the double bonus of an extremely large games room, with full size snooker table and projection home cinema, and Hot tub located a short walk from the building.The view of the night sky(when clear) from the Hot Tub is amazing.
This Cottage would be our first choice if staying in the Stirling area.
thank you to Ross and Helen for making our stay both relaxing and enjoyable.
